The construction of SILBRADE enables silicone tubing to handle increased pressure applications. SILBRADE offers outstanding resistance to temperature extremes and is made from FDA-sanctioned ingredients.
The flexible design and
construction of SILBRADE allows excellent
bend radii and permits installation in restricted spaces
without impeding flow.
SILBRADE, a peroxide-cured
product, contains no sulphur or other acid-producing
chemicals thereby eliminating the possibility of
staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials it
contacts. It is also resistant to ozone and U.V. over
long time periods.
Care is recommended in the
selection of fittings and clamps, as sharp barbed
fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the hose
wall and possibly cause a failure, especially at elevated
SILBRADE is not recommended for implantable or in-body uses or for continuous steam applications.
SILBRADE may be low
pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to
250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. However, if exposed
to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high
temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually relax
and become gummy. It should then be replaced.
